Building Your Resilient Organization

  1. Analyzing Core Functionalities
    • Do you have redundancy of systems, people, or suppliers?
    • Does your cross-functional team have back-ups to step in for them?
    • Are your operational systems and associated IT teams planning for recovery if there are disruptions or illness?
    • Do your teams practice the 3 scenarios monthly to ensure your readiness?
    • Does your supply team have backups for disruptions to primary suppliers’ deliveries?
    • Are you focusing on your data analytics to provide readiness for catastrophic failures?
  2. Using data for driving decision-making
    • Foster a culture of data-driven decision-making.
    • Unify your data silos and build end-to-end analytics to support your business activities.
    • Use predictive models and advanced analytics to optimize your business processes and find new opportunities.
    • Discover actionable insights to prevent disruptions and customer negative impacts.
    • Encourage teams to make collaborative recommendations.
    • Obtain financial projections from the finance team for each scenario: 1/ ransomware. 2/ breaches, and 3/ system disruptions.
    • Discuss recommendations with the Rapid Response team.
    • Get analytics tools, based on your business needs.
    • Review analysis of the effects of modifications and verify optimization.
    • Generate reports that are designed for teams to understand and work directly with data.
  3. Reviewing data regularly
    • Test your ransomware and system disruption daily.
    • Design an analytics program to monitor and provide data for your Rapid Response team to review as an “early warning” process for possible disruptions.
    • Verify daily your communications to your test database of customers.
    • Request a secure drive for these tasks, which sends you daily results to a separate secure text.
    • Select a tactical team of SME’s to conduct daily stand-ups, so you are ready, aware, and responsive to any disruptions or inefficiencies as they occur.
